In doing some thinking on the guns and car comparison, I did come up with this.
What if the state were to say that if you completed the NRA Basic Pistol Course, that you would recieve a discount on your carry permit?
In GA, driver's ed isn't mandated. However, if a teenager takes the course, his or her insurance rates are reduced.
